I received this in an email today and was asked to share.
Lizzy the koala was taken to a wildlife hospital in an Australian zoo, with her son holding on to her side. Poor Lizzy had been hit by a car. Her little boy, Phantom, only 6-months-old, was luckily unharmed and screamed when they tried to remove him from his mother.
Lizzy suffered a collapsed lung that required emergency surgery. Phantom continued to hold on and would not leave her even during the operation.
Lizzy survived the surgery and is currently recovering with Phantom by her side.
These amazing images displaying a son's love for his mother are heartwarming.
